Bishop Konrad von Preysing Attacks Nazi Euthanasia Program

Euthanasia Program Propaganda
Source: Wikipedia

Bishop Konrad von Preysing of Berlin delivers a sermon in St. Hedwig's Cathedral attacking the Nazi euthanasia program, Operation T4 (Aktion T4). This is one of the earliest instances where a leading member of the German Catholic Church publicly criticizes the program, but in the end the authority of those speaking out will be great enough to force the Nazis to effectively shut the program down.

This demonstrates that public opposition to the Nazi agenda, when strong enough, is sufficient to force the government to make substantial changes to what they are doing. Protest and criticism are neither impossible nor ineffective.
